Saw this a few days ago here. It's actually kinda funny. Have to give credit for that.
 
2012-06-23 12:31:59 PM
Wouldn't it be funny if it found a Cherokee relative using it?

That's such a lovely way to call someone a liar on her birthday.

It's a (small) step up from literature with watermelon and chicken bones.

Yeah, they better keep it focused on trivial bullsh*t. Brown doesn't have a chance otherwise.

And who runs Ancestry.com?
 
2012-06-23 01:24:46 PM
Bit of the article fail. The claims that she claimed it while at college are a bit overblown.

If you think that this whole thing is an issue that matters to good policy decisionmaking, please remove your genitals so that you do not pass on your defective genes.
 
2012-06-23 01:25:36 PM
Happy birthday, but there is nobody in this country who got to their birthday on their own. Nobody. You were born out there - good for you - but I want to be clear. You moved through a birth canal the rest of us paid for . . .

Agreed, I was quite surprised too.

Hey Obama's birthday is coming up next month, we should totally send him a package of Shake 'N Bake!

I love how this is absolutely all the GOP has on her.

And all they will ever have.

"Since Professor Warren has failed to come up with any evidence supporting her claims to Native American ancestry, we thought this Ancestry.com account would make the perfect birthday gift," said Massachusetts Republican Party executive director Nate Little in a statement.

Nate Little is a very small man.

As a smug, sneering liberal, I fail to see the humor in this.

See! More proof that What'sHisName the other day was correct in saying it's been the progressives pushing eugenics all along.

They also claim Obama hasn't come up with evidence of his ancestry.

is being an asshole one of the planks in the GOP platform?

Each of them, of course, can trace a direct, unbroken line to the Mayflower settlers.

+1 to you.

At least they aren't attacking her for having the audacity of being a smart woman and a *gasp* professor.

OK. I think that's some pretty funny and epic trolling right there no matter what party you are...

It's a cheap shot; but it's at least a slightly clever way to go about making a cheap shot.
I suspect it's the difference between New England GOP and Southern GOP.

Are they going to try dragging this gem out for the entire election cycle? If so, it says a lot more about them than it does about her.

On a side note, crap like this is why truly gifted Americans don't get involved in politics. Who wants to open up their lives to the kind of scrutiny where every stupid thing you ever did, relevant or irrelevant, is fair game? Unless you're complete milquetoast, there's going to be something in your background that opponents, talk-radio idiots, etc., are going to pick over. White noise like this is why so many Americans are turned off by politics.

If this isn't a ploy by the GOP to advertise a Romney endorsement on top of it all... What a zinger!

2012-06-23 02:09:55 PM

Fart_Machine: Why is this even an issue?


Because they've literally got nothing else to use against her.

And the fact that she's running for the Senate is 100% the fault of the GOP: if they'd just confirmed her to head the consumer protection bureau, she would have a job.

That's all they have on her? Don't pay much attention, eh?

Elizabeth Warren is just the latest left wing crazy fail.

Her supposedly can't-miss, slamdunk campaign has been one farkup after another thus far. The only reason she is even still in this race at all is because this is in Massachusetts.

CorporatePerson: I forget. Why are we supposed to care about this?



this woman claimed a she was a woman of color for close to a decade. she claimed she had a minority experience that she NEVER had. she was hailed as the first women of color minority hire at harvard law!
that designation confers benefits in a higher education setting, as ms. warren was fully aware. it was of course the only plausible reason why she would claim such a status. she obviously didn't claim to be a woman of color when she was rowing up or when she went to the university of houston in 1966.

it also meant her claim also allowed harvard law to claim it was fulfilling its obligation to integrate women of color in to the law school, when they were not.

warren had all the benefits of growing up in a world of white privilege, including attending Houston university before blacks were even allowed to play sports at that university, yet claimed she was a woman of color for personal advantage. and of course her decision to lie about having a minority experience disadvantaged of real minority candidates who actually suffered the repugnant affects of racial discrimination during that time and might have been considered had harvard not alleviated some of the pressure to integrate itself by hiring a fake woman of color.

now assholes like yourself are saying it is no big deal. it's all fairly disgusting and not even slightly surprising.
 
2012-06-23 02:14:56 PM
And yeah, the Ancestry.com thing is funny.

Admit it.

the only reasons the GOP aren't extinct as a party is because they are whores to billionaires who can throw enough money at the media to drown out all opposing voices

Agreed. This is by far the funniest thing (well, intentionally funny anyway) that I have seen from the republicans in a long time.

barneyfifesbullet: That's all they have on her? Don't pay much attention, eh?


By all means, enlighten us with your informed options.
 
2012-06-23 02:21:21 PM
This is the only god damn thing I ever hear coming out of this race.

I've heard exactly jack squat from any of them or their campaigns about policies, platforms, issues, beliefs or what they want to do while elected or what the Massachusetts electorate thinks of them. No debates, no speeches, nothing.... no, just this stupid farking ancestry issue that's been dragging out for weeks for no good reason. Who farking cares?!?!

If the Massachussetts (and by proxy, American) people are so ostensibly stupid that something this trivial and irrelevant will really sway the way they vote, then they get exactly what they deserve and the country will go down in flames, started by the Republicans.

For farks sakes.
 
2012-06-23 02:21:26 PM
Yeah, I threw her $5 (I'm in TX and until recently unemployed) more as a "We're supporting you across the country" sort of thing.

Having said that, I do find a degree of humor in this birthday present.

Thank you so much for explaining this. Like others on this thread, I had no idea what the fuss was but now, thanks to you, I know.

I also thank you for bearing the burden of this information. Carrying it around must be a constant source of stress and frustration for you. My hat goes off to you, you waddling, pathetic little dipshiat.

At least now you can enjoy the rest of your weekend. Maybe you could even find some time to stop whining.

My fingers are crossed for you!

What other attacks have the GOP been using against her.

It's either this or trying to antagonize professions like being a professor.

Because being smart is a bad thing apparently.
